Check Out Moby’s Pet Adoption Video (Feat. Damien Jurado)

In an effort to promote shelter pet adoption and raise awareness of the thousands of dogs and cats that are euthanized in shelters everyday, Moby released this lyric video featuring a parade of precious, adoptable dogs and cats at a L.A. shelter. ‘Course we all know the musician and animals rights activist always has animals on the brain, but you have to wonder if the inspiration for “Almost Home,” the Damien Jurado-featured track from Moby’s latest album Innocents , was recorded with a video project like this in mind, as he holds up cue-looking cards with lyrics like “the ground is hard” while posing next to a dog or kitty (sometimes offering his bald dome up for their sniffing pleasure). It’s a sweet little vid, and those pets are so awwwwwwwwwwwwww!

On a related note, for every “like” PetSafe’s Facebook page receives between now and December 31, the pet product company will donate one toy—up to 1,000—to a pet at Seattle Animal Shelter. Although for a needy pet, toys are nothing next to a loving home. If you’re looking for a new best friend, Moby says, “I hope you’re able to provide a home for a dog or cat (or gerbil or snake or any other shelter animal) this season.” And from all of us at Seattle Weekly, Happy Holidays and Meowy Christmas!
